WIP: Samurai Jack

I saw this in the request forum a while back but I didn't know how to model and now that i know how I thought I would have a go at him. My progress is shown below









So does he look like Jack?

I think the head's a tad bit big, and the Neck's very thick, other that. nice job.


People who sin say this: They had to, to survive. People who sin say this: It's too late now to stop. The shadow called Sin dogs them steadily from behind, without a word. Remorse and Agony are repeated, to finally end up at Despair. But sinners don't know that if they turn around, there is a light... a light which keeps shining on them ever so warmly. A light that will never fade.

Re: WIP: Samurai Jack

I'll se what I can do about the head and neck (they where a bit tough as I've never done a character model before..) I added the hands and have yet to do the feet.


EDIT:: You may notice some strange lines on the following shots... that was part of the bounding box that I could not remove....

Of course I do, I changed it to green so I could easially remove the background while doing those stupid animated gifs of mine

But nobody would change it to gray.

Well that and the bounding box

I'm gonna need someone to get him in-game for me though....

I like the way you've done the hand, awesome for a regular model but for JA itll be a little hard I think to weight those to the hand skeleton, might be better to go with the default hands.

If you want to cell shade it, keep the polycount low...around 1500 tris.

Also you should build or fit the mesh around the skeleton (yes that means the cartoony proportions will be lost), then someone might consider compiling it.

Well you think that, but i think that weight a robe that only has the verts at the end of the cylinder is not hard of course, but the walk animation will be f*cked up

of course but it'd need at least one set of verts at the knees, and thats all :), btw, those hands can be perfectly weighted

The hands had way too many polys so I choped some off.... eah finger has three segments to it....

I would builtd it to the skeleton but I'm using gamx so i have no way of knowing what it looks like....


As for the robe.... I can add another row of verts in the middle at about where the knees go... And the poly count should not be a problem. Since I lowered the amount on the hands the entire model right now is under 1,400. EDIT:: 1,362 to be exact.



EDIT::

Also... I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what I should do for under the robe... I was going to add some feet with a small bit of leg going into the robe. (all of that would end at around the knees) so that when the player jumped or died they would have something better to look at than a flat bottom... What are your thoughts?

well, I think if you want to have Mutliple versions, you should make full legs so you can have Jack running around in his skiddies.
; P


but if you're just making the robed version, I think just feet and shins would do, except for those perverts looking up his robes = O!

To "close" the bottom of the robe, look at mon mothma's mesh, that's a very good way to do it

-Just select the border edges, extrude inwards (hold shift + scale tool).

-Collapse the edges to a single vert and move it up a little.

Great Model !

I don't mean to add more to your workload or anything. But I was wodering if you could edit that model a bit to make it look like an old video game character I really liked.

It is a great game called 'Little Big Adventure' (or 'Relentless' in America.) The character is called Twinsen. Have you ever played this game before?

I was wondering if you could release that as another model. Don't do it if you don't want to. I was only asking.

Screenshots

Screenshot 1

Screenshot 2

Screenshot 3

Screenshot 4

Screenshot 5



Groups of Screenshots 1

Groups of Screenshots 2

If you decide to do this, Thanks alot.
If you don't want to. don't worry about it.

Thank you anyway

Very clean

After the outline, the polycount would be doubled. But 3040 isn't too much

I can't.... I don't have a program that can load the skeleton.....


Most of the proportions should still be close to the same as the hips on the jack in the cartoons starts below his belt. The only things that I would see changing would be maybe the head size and/or the length of the robe. As I've never seen the skeleton I could be wrong...

After going back to maping for a while I decided I would take another go at trying to get the model UVed and I've gotten it figured out! The lines are smoother on the actual skin but as gmax doesn't like to anti-alias anything I'm stuck with jaggies...

Anyways... enough talk. On to Screens!






Still very WIP but any comments and suggestions are welcome as allways

might just be the angle, but I think his feet should poke out just a little more.

OK I'll go ahead an admit it... I'm not the best skinner. I think I've done a pretty good job on the orbe but the eyes and mouth have me stumped.... any ideas on what I should do to them?





Think I finishd his face.... What do you think?

All I have left are the hands/arms and feet/legs.
